I Feta not have another, I'm driving.

Let me shred some light on this munster half-wheel of Parmesan Regiano we found in Publix. It tasted pretty Gouda and we considered buying it, but at $417, we were cheddar off without it.

Fresh Pickles

Its time for another batch of fresh pickles! They get better each time I make them as I learn what flavors go better together. This time I doubled the fresh horseradish and toasted the spices before adding them to the mix. I threw in 2 handfuls of sugar snap peas from the garden too. The batch fermented on the counter for 6 days and then went to the fridge, where they are waiting patiently to be eaten. Check out my original "barrel cukes" fresh pickle post here
